The 2016 Maine primary election will be held state-wide on Tuesday, June 14. Voters will select municipal, state legislative, and Congressional candidates.
In April the proposed Portland school budget for 2016-2017 passed by a wide margin, nearly 25%. Vote totals were 921 in favor, 558 against. That displays a dismally small turnout along with a regrettable result.
